PRESENTATION: This workshop provides an overview of the 12 core functions for substance use counselors.  It is created for new counselors working toward credentialing.  The core functions discussed will be screening, intake, orientation, assessment, treatment planning, counseling, case management, crisis intervention, client education, referral, reports and record keeping and consultation.  It will also include discussion of the related global criteria of substance use counseling. Participants will be shown the value of each function, how they are interrelated, and form an understanding of how they apply to clinical practice.   Participants will define the role of the twelve core functions within counseling practice; understand the interrelated aspects of the core functions and global criteria and develop a better understanding of the core functions in the counseling process.

NOTE:  Although this course meets categories of competence for substance use and other mental health counselors, this training is intended for individuals new to the profession of substance use disorders.  This course is core in nature and offers basic information.
